fresh set


Nothing like a fresh box of Pelikan paints found here while in Chicago.
A great set for travel.
These are hard to find and I would highly recommend a set if you feel inspired to paint.
My old set has been loved for years.

I'd say it was time for a new set....the old one makes me think of all the master pieces you have made. I imagine it's hard to part with them. Happy painting!

I'm not sure which I love more -- a new box of paints filled with fresh possibilities, or an old one worn away with stories of projects and inspiration. A lovely set like this would be welcome om my desk!

New and fresh is lovely but your old ones look pretty darn cool!

You'd be so proud of me Patricia. I bought some tubes of artist acrylic paints and I'm painting a rock for a needed porch door stop. Attempting Lilly P's cherry bomb print :)

Painting is my next fun project for the fall! I'll have to get that set.

I love your old set of paints - watching you paint at my kitchen table is something i'll always remember!!

Hope you're having fun in the Windy City!

My grandmother was an artist and her paints always looked like yours- well used and loved. Brings back so many memories of when I would paint with her as a child!
